Brighter Days Adult Day Program (formerly STARS) is designed to help respond to the increased need of serving people who are dealing with the challenges of dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, traumatic brain injury and other health conditions or disabilities that require supervised care. As the name suggests, our personalized support and hands-on, compassionate adult day team, provide a bright day of engaging activities while offering respite to caregivers.
Cecelia has been attending Brighter Days for six years because our program gives her a place to belong and remain active both cognitively and physically. She calls it her school. She lives with her son, Roy, who runs his own business and needs to know his mom is in a safe place during the day. Cecelia often serves to help new participants at Brighter Days feel welcome, showing interest and support for them, being like a mother to them. Roy believes, “This compulsion to help others helps her maintain and strengthen her cognitive abilities.” Roy and his fiancé give back by helping out at Brighter Days picnic and art show.
